Mother Teresa Death Anniversary: Nobel laureate declared co-patron of Calcutta Archdiocese

Mother Teresa Death Anniversary: Nobel laureate declared co-patron of Calcutta Archdiocese”

On Sept. 5, St. Mark's parish in the Archdiocese of Chicago will receive a first-class relic of St. Teresa of Calcutta for public veneration, which will then be permanently kept in the church.

She was buried at the Missionaries of Charity congregation's motherhouse in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta). "We seek her intercession and give her the prominence that is due especially in a city like Calcutta and the Archdiocese of Calcutta", said Archbishop Thomas D'Souza of Kolkata. When you painted Mother Teresa's face, you discovered goodness in her eyes and in her smile.

Today the universal Church remembers the Mother of the Last, who - as Pope Francis underlined during the canonization on September 4, 2016 - "in all aspects of her life, was a generous dispenser of divine mercy, making herself available for everyone through her welcome and defence of human life, those unborn and those abandoned and discarded". Mother Teresa died of cardiac arrest at the congregation's motherhouse in Kolkata on September 5, 1997, aged 87.

Known as Mother Teresa of Calcutta before her canonisation by Pope Francis, the "saint of the gutters" spent a major part of her life in Kolkata, where she dedicated her life to the poor, sick and dying. An unflinching faith in God was her driving force, " Prema said at the event.

Archbishop D'Souza said people from every religion honored and collaborated with Mother Teresa when she was alive.

Sikh religious leader Tajinder Singh told the group that no one comes close to the example of Mother Teresa. She left the congregation in the late 1940s and started the Missionaries of Charity in 1950.

Hindu representative Vijay Yogi Chaturvedi said Mother Teresa is called "mother" for caring for the downtrodden and her charity and service.

St Teresa of Calcutta was born on August 26, 1910 at Skopje in Macedonia.

She was the recipient of numerous honours including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and Bharat Ratna in 1980.
